Hippie by Paulo Coelho


In Hippie, his most autobiographical novel to date, Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to re-live the dream of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order – authoritarian politics, conservative modes of behavior, excessive consumerism, and an unbalanced concentration of wealth and power.Following the “three days of peace and music” at Woodstock, the 1969 gathering in Bethel, NY that would change th...

  • Ivana - Diary of Difference
    Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest Hippie is the autobiography by Paulo Coelho, written in third person. This is a story about people that travel the world, wear funny clothes and flowers in their hairs, and believe in peace, love and freedom.I have read many of Coelho’s books, even since I was a teenage girl. And all of them share something in common – the path of finding yourself. After reading Hippie, I believe that this is ...

    I have read two other Coelho books and was spiritually influenced by both. Both were full of wisdom and abstract concepts. Loved them both (The Alchemist and Manuscript Found in Accra).To me this book beat them both. Why? It is the most autobiographical book written by Coelho and it is grounded in reality. Perhaps, too, because I lived in the 60's, during the 'hippie' era, it means a lot to me.I also learned things about Coelho I did not know. Th...

    I loved The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and was hoping his new book would feel as important. In Hippie, Paulo Coelho writes a story based on his own life experiences, his relationships, political views and personal values, and his adventures of travel and terror of kidnapping. Throughout this book he has injected his thoughtful ideologies and gives us a description of the ways of the world in the 1970s.Even though Coelho had gotten himself into tro...

    هذه الرواية الجديدة من قبل الكاتب باولو كويلو استطيع ان اقول انه جزء من سيرة الذاتية للكاتب ولكن بشكل رواية وطبعا به اللمسة الخاصة للكاتب وأسلوبه الجميل في كتابة رواياته والتعمق القوي فيه, استغل الكاتب باولو كويلو في هذه الرواية ايامه في الهيبية و...

    OK, so I'm a fairly big Paulo Coelho fan. I loved The Alchemist and several of his other writings. His prose is lyrical and thought provoking and I just love that it's like nothing else I've ever read, no matter what the subject. I went into this with two thoughts in my mind: 1. That it's sort of a memoir of his life in the 70's, or at least based on experiences he's had. Who wouldn't want to see what experiences shaped this brilliant writer?and,...

    Karla and Paulo are two twenty somethings who meet in Amsterdam and travel together. They do not meet until about the 25% point in the book, and but then I was already bored by these vapid people. I lived through this period of time and, looking back on it, the hippies actually were pretty boring, pretentious and self involved. The author's autobiographical nostalgia trip wasn't really interesting to me and I stopped reading. I received a free co...
  • Nur
    Paulo Coelho is an excellent writer for sure, and apparently this is a half autobiographical book from his side but i feel like for some reason it's left in the middle. We read about the journey of Karla and Paulo, how the relationship is growing and turning into something else. Towards the end (no spoilers) Paulo finds some answers but i feel like it happens too quickly and we're not really sure what's going on as readers. And all of a sudden, t...

    "Beraber yürüyün, sarhoşluğunuzun ve mutluluğunuzun kaynağı hayat olsun, ama mesafenizi koruyun ki kimse kimseyi taşımak zorunda kalmasın - düşmek de yolun bir parçasıdır ve herkes düşünce yalnız başına ayağa kalkmayı öğrenmelidir."

    Por destino o casualidad llegó esta novela a mis manos. Y, he de admitir que, desde que la empecé no pude parar de leerla. No es que haya leído mucho de Paulo Coelho, a penas dos o tres libros, pero tengo claro que ésta es su obra más representativa y autobiográfica.Narrada en tercera persona, y a modo de relato, encontramos una historia que nos hace viajar desde Ámsterdam hasta Katmandú permitiendo al lector conocer a un Coelho más madu...
  • Andy
    This review is for the audio version. The narrator of the audiobook is uninspired and uninspiring; the characters are of different ages and backgrounds and nationalities but they somehow all sound the same. An actual memoir might have been interesting, but that's not what this is. "Hippie" is a novelization of Coelho's youth, but without a tight narrative arc. As far as Coelho's usual strength of teaching wisdom goes, the problem here is that You...

    Paulo Coelho is undoubtedly an exceptional writer. Hippie is a half autobiographical book reflecting the writer's experience. I have always loved Paulo Coelho's writing style which is extremely lyrical and charismatic. He invokes such evocative images in one's mind and has a powerful fluency with language that mesmerizes the reader. In Hippie we are introduced to Karla and Paulo both of whom are in search for answers to their questions on their p...

    Travel the world like a hippieI'm not sure what to make of this. It's a fascinating travel guide on the one hand and we get to see and experience some wonderful places but as a memoir I got a bit lost as it reads like a gap year diary going from one thought to another with little direction.I suppose people who experienced the hippie stage of life might get more from this but Paulo tells you what happened fact after fact without really delving int...

    Kitabın başındayken iyi bir kitap olduğunu düşündüm ancak ilerledikçe sıkıcı ve yüzeysel geldi. Sonuna kadar okuyamadım, bu kitap nasıl bu kadar yüksek notlar aldı anlamadım.

    I won this book in a giveaway, very excited to read it the moment it arrived in the mail. I could begin to see the shape of The Alchemist (one of my favorites) take form along Paulo’s journey. I’ve read a few of his books before this and found them to be powerful, Hippie does not disappoint. I’ve been told by some that I would have made a great hippie, due to my philosophies and ways of questioning the world around me, ever the seeker of tr...

    Okurken beni gülümsetmiş olmakla birlikte içeriği derinlikten uzak buldum. Öykü de, içinde bahsi geçen felsefi yaklaşımlar da fazla basitleştirilmiş dolayısıyla değersizleştirilmiş, sanki hippi kültürü de, sufilik de bir kez daha ticarileştirilip paraya dönüştürülmüş. Ayrıca çeviriyi de beğenmedim, ana dilinde okuma şansım yoksa da başka bir çevirmenden daha okuyup kıyaslama imkanı olsun isterdim.

    Unlike most of the people on the planet, I hadn't read a Coelho book before this one, so I'm just going to review it on its own merits. And I just wanna say -- God bless his wife. It's not every woman who can support her husband as he pens a nostalgic and personal story about his experiences with two of his early girlfriends. But more than his personal relationships, this book is about international hippie experiences, and a side of that culture ...

    Finally I've finished it.Again Coelho rips my heart out with the way he works with characters.
  • Shamsa
    This book reflects a part of the authors life, the days he was a hippie..The magic bus travels from Europe to the east, with hippies on board exploring and enjoying life.During Paulo’s trip he meets and falls in love with Karla. I don’t want to give much away, but I wish they have met after all these years...Honestly halfway through until the end of the book, I felt that hippies had absolutely no purpose in life. I don’t mean to judge other...
  • Betty
    This autobiographical book, told in third person, is basically the story of man's bus trip from Amsterdam to Istanbul in the '60s. It seemed that he was pulling up all his memories of that time and writing them down whether they fit into a story or not. Mia's Farrow's love life, for example.I think it's fair to call the book self-indulgent. He is the star of this book and we experience what he experienced. Except ... when he focuses on other char...

    Lots of religious references or Sufism never work for me although I loved the part of the travel in the book and the description of the 60's. It is a very suitable comfortably read book. A complete summer book. As a travel reference and life experiences or as a memoir I enjoyed while reading it.I started this book with a great enthusiasm and expectation, but the book did not meet my expectations. I must say that I found the expression quite beaut...

    Coelho’nun yolculuğunun ve tekamülünün Hac kitabındaki gibi olduğunu düşünmüşümdür fakat görüyoruz ki herşey 1970 yılında bir “sıska” hippinin Amsterdam’dan 70 dolarlık biletle Nepal otobüsüne binip yolculuğuna bir yıllığına İstanbul’da ara vermesiyle şekillenmiş. Herkesin kendi yolculuğuna dair birşeyler bulabileceği veya feyz alabileceği yönleri, satır araları olduğunu düşünüyorum. Kitabın en...
